Watch your back! How to spot and identify demons and other subversive spirits...and what to do next.
Demons, fairies, and fallen angels are everywhere. They lurk at crossroads, crouch behind doors, hide in trees, slip into beds, wait in caves, hover at weddings and childbirths, disguise themselves as friends, relatives - even disguise themselves as you. They are powerful; they are protean; they are enchanting. And, to the uninformed, they are often invisible. This guide - the first of its kind - reveals the remarkable permutations of the demon and fairy species worldwide.
Packed with lore about each demon, detailing its origins, the culture surrounding it, and its reputed antics and exploits, A Field Guide to Demons, Fairies, Fallen Angels, and Other Subversive Spirits is a fascinating exploration of global mythologies. Perfect for the armchair traveler and the intrepid, seasoned demon-spotter alike, this complete guide to subversive spirits offers a behind-the-scenes look at the devilish mishaps, impish irritations, and demonic devastations that punctuate our lives.
World travelers planning trips to the Tommyknocker-inhabited mines of North America or to the domain of the Mbulu, who guards the rivers of South America, might consider first listening to Carol and Dinah Mack's Field Guide to Demons, Vampires, Fallen Angels, and Other Subversive Spirits. Or better yet, they might take in this audio bestiary from the relative safety of their own home, where narrator Reay Kaplan adopts an engaging, teacherly tone to catalogue an entire world of enchanted spirits. Experienced demonologists may find the Mack's guide rudimentary, but casual investigators of the supernatural will learn much in this thoroughgoing primer. Arranged geographically by habitat - ocean, desert, forest - the Macks' audiobook is a kind of supernatural and folkloric Who's Who.
